In front of global audience, Netanyahu draws red line on his ridiculous bomb cartoon that is here

I saw this happen in real time - as I posted earlier. It was such a patronizing and fear mongering speech meant to scare and bully the American people into war with Iran. Then he whips out this little number - . I love me some Israel - and I know the Israeli people were probably going all Joe Scarborough when this happened.!!!




by Adam Horowitz on September 27, 2012

"More on Benjamin Netanyahu's UN speech soon. In the meantime, if you missed it, the screenshot above was the highlight.

"Here's a roundup of some of the immediate reaction on Twitter:

@ibnezra I want to know who in the Israeli delegation saw that bomb chart and said, "yeah, this is great." #Netanyahu

✔@JeffreyGoldberg Okay, it's official: #Netanyahu has no idea what he's doing. He has just turned a serious issue into a joke.

Not everyone thought the cartoon bomb was such a bad idea:

Ari Fleischer
✔@AriFleischer Bibi's use of that chart was one of the most effective, gripping, uses of a chart I've ever seen. Is the world listening??

@NoahPollak Theory: ppl freaking out about bomb chart would have preferred to have their intellects flattered with unintelligibly complex chart

2. That can't be a REAL bomb...

 

It doesn't have "ACME" printed on the side of it!

5. LOL Ari Fleischer was the only tweet that liked it. Called it a gripping chart. What a jerk!

7. And the chart really did not effectively make his point

Was he trying to say that Wyle E. Coyote was going to win???? I watched the speech and the chart kept hitting the microphone and making noises.
